An Invitation to A Cup of Christmas Tea and Peanut Butter Blossoms

                Start with some giving                    
  and a cup of caring,
Soon… everyone will
  want to be sharing.

  Add lots of kindness
and pinches of praise,
  It will smooth over
all of your rough days.

Heap in some patience
  and always be nice,
  Mix in some humor,
for just the right spice.

 Sprinkle good will and
  add some good cheer,
It will last throughout the year,

Remember the reason,
for the joy of the season,
     It makes this tea,
  much more pleasing.

 You are invited to my Christmas Tea. I love tea parties. My girlfriend Carolyn and I have had many tea parties with our granddaughters over the years.  We have even had Christmas teas with our friends.  There is something special about a Christmas Tea. Even during the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, it's a time to stop and connect and and enjoy the friendships that you've had all year long.. I'm having this tea for all of the wonderful friendships that I have made in the FoodBuzz community.
 
 
As you can see, I have A Cup Christmas of  Tea Cup,  plate, and little book. I do not have teapot, but they are out of production.  If anybody ahs a teapo or cups, that they would like to part with, let me know. A Cup of Christmas Tea by Tom Hegg was touching little story about a nephew who had an elderly aunt that had  a stroke and was failing. His aunt had invited him to have"A Cup of Christmas Tea" , but he really didn't want to go.  She wasn't the same woman that he once knew.  Begrudgingly he went, and his aunt had recreated the Christmas from chilhoods past.  It was wonderful and he was so happy that he went, "he saw the triumph of a soul."  It's just a heartwarming little short story,  it's why I like Christmas teas
 
Come on in, have A Cup of Christmas Tea, relax, and sample the Christmas treats.

One way that you can pay it forward is to buy a few essential groceries and take them to your local food pantry, if you haven't done so already.  Due to the economy,  many food pantries are running out of food, especially during the holidays. . Thank you for doing this, and it will make you feel so good:)

Now,  In my future posts, I"ll have all the goodies I have had at my Christmas teas. I've always used the recipe on Hershey's Kisses bag, so here it is. Peanut Butter Blossoms
